resisting spending cuts. if you really want to know why paul ryan's budget will not advance much further than the house it was passed today, allow me to read the opening sentiments from the associated press were today. a familiar budget plan, the nuts and bolts programs of the government. it is cruising for passage in the tea party flavored house. wow, that is supposed to be a news piece. the law undreamt line of what was supposed to be a tax piece. it restores many of the cruel automatic spending cuts. all is missing is a line like thank god for the democrats. then it was also considered a cheese head. it starts out fair and factual enough. under the rhine plan, the government subsidizes it. the only famous unnamed critics who say all of this would mean ever shocking. he is heartless and soulless and probably the double in pinstripes. it is one thing when they say it was all but a sham. it is another thing for them to prove that it is an even bigger sham. they are darn near inbred watching politicians who continue to say that we don't have a spending problem. and one that is only trying
